Building the Firefox River Trail Extension
This README is for extension developers. If you just want to install the River Trail extension, you can install a pre-built version.
Preliminaries: OpenCL SDK
MacOS X 10.6 and later already provide the required OpenCL stack as part of the operating system. On Windows and Linux, you will need to install the Intel OpenCL SDK for the extension to work.
Building the extension
This extension is based on the Firefox Add-on SDK. In order to build and test the extension, first install the Add-on SDK and activate it in the Add-on SDK's directory. For example, on Linux, Mac OS and MinGW on Windows:
cd addon-sdk source bin/activate
On Windows with the native shell:
cd addon-sdk bin\activate
cd RiverTrail/extension cfx run # launches an instance of Firefox with the extension cfx xpi # creates an installable XPI file
Once you have the extension up and running, test it out with one of our demos.
